How do you like yours?

That’s probably what I would ask you if we were meeting for the first time.

Did you have any trouble reaching this place? The traffic has been so crazy of late…

If we were catching up over a cup of coffee,

I’d probably begin by asking how your day was. I’d ask how things were in general and with people you care about…that and whether this was your first time in the city and where all you have been…

I’d check if you preferred sweets to the savoury. If you’d like to try something savoury – nothing like hot pakodas with hot tea or coffee even, in this weather. What are those you ask? Deep fried savoury goodness, stuffed with onions or potatoes. Maybe something similar to onion rings? But better 🙂

Too much? Would you prefer something sweet instead? This café serves a lovely banana cake as well. Best tried hot.

I have grown up being force-fed banana cakes. Mum had phases where she’d pick a fruit or veg, make it the star ingredient of a cake and bake one every week for months, trying to perfect the recipe. Banana cake was a resident, although carrot did come over and stay with us for quite some time. I would think I’d had enough of them, but this one changed my mind.

I like the decor here. The tables have been arranged comfortably enough to allow space and conversation. I like how they have turned used bottles into a string of overhanging lights!

Oh, I didn’t notice this one earlier, your cushion is called “chat“! How cute. Well, let me find “chit” and we can officially begin…(although I have been talking nineteen-to-the-dozen so far…)

If we were catching up over coffee,

I would like to find out what your hobbies were and how life has been treating you.

I’d tell you about one of my trips to Bhutan. It is such a beautiful, quiet place. It’s a beautiful mountain kingdom and more should be written about it. Just what I needed at that time. The trek to Tiger’s Nest was taxing, but worth it! I loved the scenic beauty, the monasteries and their prayer flags.

I’d tell you how I plan to sign up for a photography course once I finish the one on writing. While I am enjoying this, I am looking forward to that too…In fact, on the topic of photography, I wanted to buy a DSLR camera for beginners – do you have any suggestions?

Ok, enough about me. How are things with you?

  1. Wow! I thought I would never get a chance to put a word in!
    I’m trying to get adjusted and organized for winter. Four inches of snow so far and 20 F. forecast for this evening. I spent a couple of hours yesterday hiking along a little river taking photographs. (see my most recent post) Tomorrow is family time and we only have four of us left. Time marches on.
    Photography has been a life long hobby of mine so if you would like a few tips contact me at Sorry I have to run. Have a nice day.

    1. 😀 thank you for dropping by. Family time is always good. Home and family somehow take a special meaning in this season – whether its the one you were born in or any that you choose I suppose. Everything that is snug and warm reminds one of them I suppose.
      Tips would be great – I’ll definitely drop by.
